An evergreen Italianate idyll at Ickworth

Ickworth's Italianate garden is one of the first of its kind in the UK. Designed for privacy, space and freedom, it's a distillation of the gardens of classical Italy given an individual English touch.

A winter walk at Ickworth

Winter stroll 

As we head into winter we'd recommend a stroll along Erskine Walk, where the path winds through winter-flowering shrubs, showcasing coloured and textured bark, winter berries and bulbs. The walled garden is also a magical spot on frosty mornings, especially when there's a mist over the fairy lake.
